Junior Fellowships are offered annually for the purpose of pursuing further British art or architectural history doctoral research in the United Kingdom based at the Paul Mellon Centre.
They are designed for applicants who are advanced in their doctoral research and need to have an extended period of archival or library research in the United Kingdom.
The Fellowship is an award of £8,000 to cover a period of three months.
The Paul Mellon Centre is an educational charity that champions new ways of understanding British art history and culture. Through all areas of our work, including our grants and fellowships programme, we promote activities that enhance and expand knowledge of British art and architecture. As an institution, we pledge ourselves to ensuring that the histories of British art are enriched and made more relevant to a broader range of people in the future. The inclusion of voices, narratives and experiences that have been marginalised or excluded in the past will have a transformational impact on the future of the Centre and upon British art studies. Accordingly, the Paul Mellon Centre particularly welcomes applications from those who are under-represented within the academic field of the humanities in the UK.
